Crease make-up has changed the scenario of eye make-up. International artists all around the world are following this new trend and for good reason. Crease Eye Makeup is a high definite version of the 2000’s smoky eye makeup.

Crease, as the name suggests, is all about working on the crease of the eye and then the socket — for years we've been doing it the other way around!

It follows in the footsteps of smoky eyes, where the colours are well blended and smoked out. The only difference is, RED IS THE NEW BLACK! Brick red to be precise! A trend within the trend is using brick red on the crease of the eye and the lower lash line. This gives your eyes an extremely sultry finish.

Why choose Crease Eye Make-up is a question asked by making beauty fanatics. Well, the answer is pretty simple:

It is quick: unlike the other styles, crease eye make-up can literally take two-three minutes to finish (if you are good at it.)

It is easy: the best part about this style is you can keep your eyes open and do it, which makes it super easy to nail the look. (Practice makes perfect.)

It's a trend: it is the new in thing! So, get that brush and get on the bandwagon. That is of course, if you personally like the look!

Things to keep in mind:

Be creative: Like previously mentioned, this is a style, so make it your own with a little personal touch.

Colours: Switch up the colours! If you watch a tutorial on this style of eye make-up you will notice almost all artists use the same colour! That's not necessary to do. Instead of brick red, try a brown, green and blue. Whatever looks and feels good!

Don't Downplay: If you are going to sport this look, you have already decided to go over the edge and be bold, so don't chicken out and downplay the rest of your make-up, if you don't want to.

Why sport the look?
Crease make-up makes your eyes look bigger, it’s creating an illusion of rounder eyes. Which of course is a great thing if you want all eyes on your eyes! It’s a good way to make your eyes stand out even if you have small eyes. The best part about this look, is you don’t need to close your eyes to show your friends the eye make-up. It’s pretty evident from miles away.

Who thought a couple of wrinkles on your eyes would be a good thing?
